A global ensemble of folklore students appears to be like at a few diverse ways that nationwide and ethnic teams have characteristically and creatively used imagined states of existence---some idealizations, a few demonizations---in the development of identities for themselves and for others. Drawing on oral traditions, particularly as represented in conventional ballads, broadsides, and the story collections, they give thought to fertile landscapes of the brain the place utopias overflow with bliss and abundance, stereotyped nationwide and ethnic caricatures outline the lives of "others," nostalgia glorifies domestic and career, and idealized and mythological animals function cultural icons and guideposts to harmonious social existence.
